Diversity Club and The Chomp share a variety of foods and learn about a variety of winter holidays together.

We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and hopefully a refreshing break from work and school! Before the holiday break, The Chomp staff attended the Diversity Club’s Multicultural Holiday Party! It was hosted in the library and was celebrated with different foods and good company.

Mrs. Waring and her students brought food to celebrate holidays like Diwali, Kwanzaa, and more. Everyone was incredibly eager to try foods they had never had before. The tres leche cups were a big hit!

Additionally, students participated by sharing a little bit about each holiday. I researched and discussed Kwanzaa with the group! I also prepared benne seed cookies to celebrate!

This year, make it a priority to do some research into other cultures to find out how they celebrate each holiday! Don’t be afraid to eat or try something new this year!
